Gateway is a master-planned community located just off Interstate 75 between Daniels Parkway and Colonial Blvd. Incredibly quick access to Southwest Florida International Airport is a perk for frequent travelers or visitors.

Set amongst 3,000 acres of the most beautiful tropical landscape, Gateway offers a lifestyle marked by a balance of style and ultimate convenience within a tight knit community that distinguishes itself through a strong sense of neighborhood, active family living, and a multitude of options not offered by any other community in the area. Gateway Boulevard is the main street that runs through the community and features landscaped medians, and miles of sidewalks for walking and biking. 

Gateway offers a superior location with a resplendent mixture of residential, educational, business, and recreational options onsite. With 800 acres of commercial property and more than 40 businesses located in the community, including Sony, Gartner, Comcast, Baader, and Ford Motor Credit, Gateway is indeed Lee County's premier community in which to live, work, play and raise a family.

Gateway functions as a charming "hometown" community, self-sufficient in many ways, allowing residents and visitors to enjoy each day as it comes, without having to concern themselves of having to leave the community unnecessarily.

 When it comes to recreational amenities, Gateway's opportunities are endless. Located in the heart of Southwest Florida, Gateway is close to sandy white beaches, and many outdoor activities including boating, fishing, nature preserves, parks, bike and fitness trails. The new Jet Blue Red Sox Stadium a short bike ride away; and the Minnesota Twins Stadium is just a few minutes’ drive. Gateway is the perfect place to raise a family or enjoy a relaxing retirement. Shopping at its best is available at nearby Gulf Coast Town Center, Bell Tower Shops, Coconut Point Mall, and Miromar Factory Outlet stores. Each shopping center includes every store you could wish to visit and each houses large movie theaters. Gateway is also close to cultural and dining centers, casino, sports venues, and excellent health care facilities, and is within easy access to Interstate 75, and minutes to (RSW) Southwest Florida International Airport. In addition to highly-rated private and public Charter Schools (Kindergarten through 12th grade), Florida Gulf Coast University (nicknamed "Dunk City"), and Florida Southwestern University both provide excellent higher educational opportunities.
